With the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 8 just around the corner, Quetta Gladiators will be looking to make a strong comeback in the upcoming edition of Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) marquee event since their performance in the last three seasons has not been up to the mark.
Finishing positions in previous seasons
Quetta were arguably the most consistent team in the PSL during the first four seasons. The Sarfaraz Ahmed-led unit qualified for three finals in four years, which included the title triumph in 2019. They were the runners-up in the first and second seasons.
However, they have been at the receiving end during the last three editions as they have not gone beyond the league stage.
